Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies



When I saw this recipe, I knew it would be one I'd like to try.  I made these as a thank-you for a friend, and the partial batch I made left just enough for us to enjoy some too :)

1 c butter
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/4 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 c oats
2 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°.  Cream butter and sugars together.  Mix in vanilla and eggs.

Stir in flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda.

Add in oats and chocolate chips.

Drop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet, and bake for 8 minutes or until done.

Comments from the cook:  No, you weren't mistaken.  The original recipe only calls for 2 types of chocolate.  BUT, I have a container of Special Dark Hershey's Cocoa in my cupboard...so I used half regular cocoa and half special dark.  And there you have it.  3 chocolates!  And the result?  Rich awesomeness.  Mmmmmhmmmm.

Photography secret, just FYI... I usually only bake up a few cookies for eating right away, then refrigerate my leftover cookie dough (or freeze it in pre-shaped balls).  For best results, I bake another batch the next day.  Very cold or frozen dough generally results in cookies that spread less.  This makes for thicker, fudgier cookies...of which I am a fan :)  And they just happen to look better than the cookies from batch #1, too!

  2. This has become my go to cookie recipe when I'm craving a sweet snack. I replace half the butter with peanut butter and use craisins and they are awesome.
